Hi, I did not realise how much I would enjoy gnome stamps before we stocked Trinity Stamps in July 2020. Watch the video tutorial below to see how I use Catherine Pooler inks (with water and a paintbrush) to colour the cutest gnome from the Friends are Flowers stamp set.

- Stamp the gnome onto Bristol card with Midnight ink.
- Choose your favourite Catherine Pooler inks colours.
I use Catching Rays, Chiffon and Do-Si-Di for the flowers, Grass Skirt and Garden Party for the leaves. Serenade and Drive In for the gnome’s hat. Icing on The Cake and Over Coffee for the gnome’s beard, and Sand Castle and Do-Si-Do for the gnome’s face. Drive In, Deck The Halls and Suede Shoes for the gnome’s shoes and clothing.
- Stamp as many butterflies as you wish. I stamped five but only use four.
- Colour these with the same colours as in the gnome image.
- Stamp the sentiment onto white card.
- Die cut all the images with the coordinating dies.
I planned on using this gnome when I ink blended the scene day slimline card last week and chose my ink colours for the gnome based on this scene. A Bright vibrant gnome with bright vibrant Summery flowers for a soft coloured Spring or early Summer day.
- Foam mount the gnome, sentiment and butterflies to this ink blended scene.
- Then mount to a 4” x 9” card base.
